Academic Libraries: UC Davis Joins Google Books Library Project

From a California Digital Library News Post by Heather Christenson and Karleen Darr:

In June 2013, the UC [University of California] Davis Library began sending public domain (out-of- copyright) books and journals to be digitized as part of UC’s partnership in the Google Books Library Project.

UC Davis is the 6th UC site to participate in the Google project, joining NRLF, UCSC, UCSD, UCLA, and UCSF.

During the course of the project, UC Davis expects to digitize approximately 45,000 volumes, from regular and special collections, including the Viticulture & Enology Collection.
